We have all been there, we have just finished our workout and are in need of a quick healthy meal that will replenish us for the day. Unfortunately, when we get home, nothing is ready! We are tempted to order food but even that will take at least 20 minutes. The following are some tips to make gourmet meals in under 10 mins when you get home from the gym.
- Turn stove on first.
The bottleneck in the kitchen process is usually warming up water, or the oven. This bottleneck is further emphasized when you are living in student housing and your stove barely works (shout out Sarnia rd). So pre heat everything immediately. If you're feeling like a pro, turn the stove on, put a pot full of water, then jump into the shower. Once the heat is turned on you can grab all the food you want out of the fridge or cabinet and get it ready to make.
- Cut smaller pieces.
When you are cutting your vegetables or meats, cut them as small as possible because they cook faster when they are small. They don't have to be the perfect size or shape (unless you are trying to impress your friends) long, skinny cuts work optimally. An effective tool in the kitchen is to use kitchen scissors. Kitchen scissors are really good for cuttings stuff because you don't need a cutting board and you can cut stuff right over the pan. It takes a little bit of learning of skill, but in the long term it will save you time and dishes.
- Prep food the night before.
- Make your own sauce:
- Lastly, just eat more fresh vegetables
Good luck, everyone! And if you have questions please don't hesitate email me email@example.com
